In view of recent developments we have decided that Jinjuu will close Today from 10:00pm.
We have not taken this decision lightly but one with the staff and guests safety and well being foremost in our mind.
Our team at Jinjuu have been dedicated and focused during these challenging times and we wish to thank them sincerely for their efforts.
We will be back just as soon as it is safe to do so and please keep an eye out on our website for updates.
Food is great however I don’t get why the my
My two friends and I had the worst customer service we have EVER experienced at this restaurant on Friday evening. As soon as we arrived we felt pressured to order. Unfortunately I was unexpectedly suffering a flare up of an ongoing illness so I was unable to eat, however, shortly after my friends finished their food we were brought the bill (we had been there a total of 45 minutes). We were then harassed by 4 waiters and who we believe was the manager to pay and leave immediately despite our booking stating that we would have the table for one and a half hours. The staff, especially the manager, were unbelievable rude, to the point that my friends and I were physically shaking with disbelief. They claimed that they needed our table for the next customers however, there were numerous empty tables around us and the entire downstairs of the restaurant was set up for business but empty. After ongoing harassment we finally left the restaurant exactly 59 minutes after being seated (in the end the manager snatched the bill from our table and asked us to just leave and not bother paying). We are absolutely appalled by our treatment and shall never be returning again. I am writing this review because no one should ever be subjected to such behaviour.
Dear Opentable guests, You could find a detailed response to this comment on our Tripadvisor page which is worth a read. K
Great food and drinks. Service could be slightly improved.
Hey Darryl, Thank you for the feedback. If you would like to share a bit more info on your experience, please do not hesitate to reach me at email@example.com. K
Had a really nice lunch! People very friendly.
What an amazing brunch. The food and drinks were flowing and I’d highly recommend going. Thanks Jinjuu for a fabulous Saturday
the food was great I had tuna tar tar , sweet chilli prawns , and south Karen doughnut, had to have Japaneses bear it was the only draft , mist a trick there were south Karen people eating there which is a good sign . I would go back again yum. My mate liked his choice to .
Bad service. We had just received the dessert card, when the waiter told us another reservation had been made for our table and we had to leave. This, even though we had also reserved a table and had only been there for about 40 minutes.
Hi Joeri, Thank you for the feedback. Please accept our sincere apology of the incident. I have looked into the issue and it was clearly a case of miscommunication as that message was for a completely different table. If you would be able to drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, I shall be sure to make this up to you. Many thanks, K
Very loud, techno music in the background. Overpriced food and the quality is quite disappointing.
The food was average, but for the price I really expected much higher quality food.
Dreadful. My first and last time in this restaurant
Leider kamen unsere Hauptspeise komplett versetzt bei 4 Personen
Der erste war fertig dann kam das Essen für den letzten
Für diese Kategorie unakzeptabel
Food great, service good but could have been better.
We booked last minute and honestly couldn't have picked a better restaurant, the food and the ambiance was excellent!
Booked the bottomless brunch for my brother’s birthday. The food was incredible with great portion sizes, the sharing start boarder was definitely the highlight. Lovely vibe and our servers were very friendly and wanted to help. You get your money’s worth with the bottomless option as my drink was never empty! Would highly recommend and will be going again.
Hi Cerys, Thank you so much for your wonderful review. We are dead chuffed that you have enjoyed our bottomless brunch. As a bottomless aficionado myself, I most certainly would hate to have an empty glass! Please do come visit us again. K
Best restaurant we have been to in ages. Fab food, loved the set menu & flight of shots. Great music, friendly staff - can’t wait to go back!!
Hi there, We are delighted to see all the 5 stars from you, thank you so much! You should totally come visit us on DJ weekends as it's defo the highlight of the week. Best, K
Western style korean food, was delicious and would come back. The waiter cleared the plates while one of our friends was still eating which was rude but apart from that everything we ate was amazing.
Hi there, Thank you for sharing such a lovely review despite the slight flaw. Please be assured that your experience would be shared with the team for improvements. Please do come visit again soon. K
Great food and service as always. Not cheap, but doesn’t stop us going back!
Hi Mark, Thanks for your return visits! I would highly recommend you to try our bottomless brunch which is known for it's amazing value and legendary top-ups. :) See you soon. K
The food was tasty and different. We shared a selection of starters rather than a starter and main course. We enjoyed the different flavours and the prawn lollipops were really nice. The rest was very good too. It was a pre theatre supper.
Hi Joanna, Thank you for sharing your positive feedback. I have to agree with you that the prawn lollies are just sooo addictive! Please do visit us again soon. K
Food was amazing, music was amazing, service was amazing.
The food was very nice. The japchae, salmon and avocado sashimi starter was especially delicious. Overall enjoyed the evening, the atmosphere and service was amazing, very accommodating with my allergies.
Hi there, Thank you for your lovely comments. Glad to know that we could help you with your requirements. Please do come visit us again soon. K
lovely service, food was prepared very quickly. great experinec

Top Music / Playlist
Excellent value for money, with delicious and varied food
Thanks for the 5 stars, Mysterion. :)
Delicious food but a little cramped and quite pricey for the portion sizes.
Hi John, Thank you for the feedback. Glad to know that you enjoyed the food. We would most certainly recommend you to try our weekend brunch which is known for it's amazing value. :) K
The food great! Jinjuu takes traditional Korean and makes it even better
Hi Arshi, We are delighted to hear that you have enjoyed your visit. Please do come back and try our new spring menu in the coming month! K
Second visit and still a phenomenal dining experience. Loads of veggie options and the bibimbap with crispy tofu is to die for.
Thanks for the kind words Lee. I have to agree that the tofu lollies are sooo addictive! I always sneak a piece out myself if I could! :) K
Beautiful venue, excellent food and incredibly attentive staff
Hi Christine, Thank you for such a great rating. I am sure the team would be delighted to know that you have had a great time. See you again soon. K
Amazing food. Nice atmosphere. Very cozy and nice place for a night out with friends or for a date night. Not the cheapest but good price for what you get. Would recommend.
Hi Mona, Thanks for the lovely feedback. You should totally visit on a Sat night if you are in a party mood. It's electric! K
The food was lovely but thought the bottomless element was quite stingy and staff were very rude when we asked to be topped up for a final time. Based on that I wouldn’t go back and wouldn’t recommend to others, there are far better bottomless brunches to be had in London.
Hi Holly, We are disappointed to hear that you were dissatisfied with your bottomless brunch experience. Unfortunately, we would have to refute the claims in this instance. Your server constantly topped up your glasses throughout the service and I never saw it went below 50% at anytime. 125 min into your 90 min session, you requested a top up to which we declined. You then accused us for not topping you up enough which was untrue. Other reviews of our bottomless brunch speak for itself. K
We had lovely food and drink. The brunch starter sharing platter was delicious, and the mains were so generous that no one finished. Good cocktails and Prosecco. We struggled to get the attention of waiting staff a couple of times, but otherwise perfect.
Hi Beth, Thank you for the positive feedback. Please do accept our apology for the slightly flawed service. Weekend brunch can be a bit hectic but we do try our best to go around as best as we could! :) We do hope to see you again soon. K
I was pretty disappointed as I'd left a note asking the restaurant to bring out a dessert for my mums birthday. When it came to ordered we'd all said no, however it would have been suspicious if I'd ordered one as I'm not eating sugar. I tried to subtly gesture to the waiter to bring something out and he said "WHAT" really loudly over the table giving the game away completely. Nothing was brought out for my mum and I really wanted her to feel special. Would have left a much higher review if this had been executed correctly :(
Hi Chelsea, Thank you for your feedback. Please accept our sincere apology for not being able to meet your expectation in this occasion. We have already shared your comments with the rest of the team just so we would deliver a better experience in the future. If you would be so kind to give us another try, please do contact me directly at email@example.com and we shall be sure to look after you. K
The food and cocktails were absolutely divine. One big draw-back to our experience was the restaurant appeared to transform into a House club at around 10pm. We had a late booking for 9.30pm on a Saturday night. On arrival, we noticed a DJ in the corner. Music levels at that point were loud-ish but to be expected for a Saturday night Soho dining experience in a busy restaurant.
But by 10pm, the volume was up very high, to the extent that we couldn’t hear each other speak at all and the bass line had started to resonate through our plates...and teeth. Half the diners had finished and were up on their feet dancing, while the other half of the restaurant was still eating. It’s a small venue, so it made for quite an awkward experience for the people still eating.
We eventually asked to be moved to the downstairs area, where the volume was less obnoxious. It was helpful also that the music also eventually progressed from droning House music to general party tunes (think Beyoncé etc).
Overall, I would recommend but, at the risk of sounding like an old lady, if you want to hear your companions speak, or aren’t a fan of House/dance music maybe avoid later bookings on a Saturday night.
Hi Toni, Thank you so much for the detailed review. We are glad to know that you thoroughly enjoyed our food and drinks. We completely agree that weekends at Jinjuu is a bit more bar orientated towards the later part of the evening. That's why we are more than happy to accommodate any diners who wish to have a more relaxed experience, should they wish to be seated downstairs. All in all, thank you for the recommendation and we hope to see you again soon. K
Great night and great food. Music selection was excellent!
Hi there, Wonderful to hear that you had a great evening with us! Please do party with us again soon. K
The mandus were amazing, the bibimbab was good but nothing to write home about.
Place was a bit loud - more like a bar than a restaurant. Which is fine, but I wouldn't go there for deep conversations.
The starters were delicious but unfortunately we waited nearly 1 hour for the mains to arrive despite repeatedly asking our waiter. We had theatre tickets so had less than 10 mins to eat them before needing to leave and then had to run to the theatre. Less than ideal
Hi Paul, Thank you for sharing your feedback. Please accept our sincere apology for the delay to your service. That was indeed rather unusual. If you would be so kind to give us another try, please do contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and I shall be sure to look after you. K
I've been twice in the past month or so and it's been perfect both times. Amazing food, lovely staff, great atmosphere.
Hi Stuart, Thank you so much for the rating! Please do come back to see us again soon. :) K
The Venue has a nice chilled trendy feel, it would be perfect if it were a little bigger in size. The food and service has always been amazing, on every occasion I’ve visited. Especially the reception and the down stairs waitress staff. Overall it’s a great restaurant with fabulous food, a decent wine and cocktail list. It’s affordable and the DJ takes it to another level...Ultimate fun and cool vibes!!
Hi Cici, We are glad to hear that you have enjoyed the visits time and time again. Your feedback shall be shared with the team and I am sure they would be dead chuffed too. We shall see you again soon. K
Delicious food and cocktails. Amazing music - arriving to Gloria is the way to go - and the 80s hits kept coming. thank you
Hi Pigeons, :) We are glad to hear that you had a great visit! Isn't the 80's just great? Hopefully you join us again soon. K
Vibe of restaurant is very trendy and a cool concept. The starters sharing board is delicious, especially the dumplings and the fried chicken is cooked to perfection. Mains are also tasty but too pricey.
Staff was amazing helped us pick the best choice, noted that I wanted to make a special occasion sparklers with desert. Drinks were perfect made to what we wanted. My favorite place in London
